When Round Rock ISD transitioned to virtual learning in the spring, Chrissy Weber noticed changes in her son, who is diagnosed with autism and an intellectual disability.
“He’s having more difficulty with transitions and change because his world has been narrowed down to being at home,” Weber said.
Weber’s son was one of nearly 7,500 RRISD students who received special education or dyslexia services during the 2019-20 academic year. While real-time learning—a change from the spring—will provide more one-on-one instruction, Weber said virtual learning still is not realistic.
